Has Anyone Entered as a Family Member Recently?


I found it to be very no hassle upon entry, though now the question is if I will be able to change to a new visa category (in the opinion of one lawyer, no) and what the consequences could be for overstaying which I'm also considering.
Thank you. In my case I just want to make sure I can reenter, I don't really care about getting residency here in the short / mid-term (at the moment). My thinking is, if I come back in Aug / Sep then with three months visa I can make it until year end, and then I hope to spend a few weeks or months in Uruguay / Brazil (depends obviously on the Covid situation until then, but I am mildly optimistic). If tourism is still restricted at the year end, then I guess over-staying won't be much of a problem.
